About the Resource

The drama methods, or conventions, in this drama pack form the core of any drama work. They can be used in isolation for a specific purpose, for example, to investigate one aspect of a character, or combined to develop a more in-depth approach to a story, poem, script, historical character, issue, etc.

This pack doesn’t contain every single drama method that exists but the majority are here – and these are the methods that you will be likely to use most often.

Many drama methods can be used in the classroom and across the curriculum, in conjunction with other teaching methods but don’t feel that you have to use every method in every lesson! Most drama lessons will involve just two or three methods, and you can pick out individual methods to suit your needs in other areas of the curriculum. Examples are given of each method in practice which  will help you to employ them in your own work.

Methods include "A Day in the Life", "Collective Drawing", "Mantle of the Expert" and more than twenty others.

Ideal for creating a lesson plan, as a quick reference, as a starter point for new drama practitioners or for teachers of other subjects who want to include Drama techniques in their subject and topic exploration.

About the Author

Alison Chaplin is a qualified drama teacher, a writer and an experienced youth theatre director. She mostly writes plays for children to read and perform. Because she is still a big kid herself, she likes to write plays which are funny. But she has also written some serious plays too. She doesn't really have a favourite play, although her Christmas play - The Xmas Factor - makes her laugh a lot.
She has written over 20 plays and enjoys hearing about them being performed, and what young actors liked about their performances.
When she’s not writing plays, Alison is the manager of Arts On The Move, a company providing lovely creative support for schools, actors, youth groups and drama practitioners.  
Alison's favourite colour is bright pink. Her favourite food is potatoes. Her favourite football team is Manchester City. She enjoys watching TV, reading and Zumba.
